Lightning Moon - August

The first full moon of the month will rise around 11:28 p.m. on the first day of August.  

Grain moon, sturgeon moon, red moon, green corn moon, dog moon?  How about Lightning Moon?

It was great pleasure searching for full moon paintings to help honour the day, so many beautiful images to choose from.....
